CCR Tree Build Question

I have looked at several tree designs through the forum.  I intend to use 1/2" EMT to construct my 12 ribbon  tree.  My question is about the correlation between the sequencer and the tree itself.  The sequencer graphic shows the interior pixels at the top of the tree filling the inverted  V in the bottom of the star yet the bottom row of pixels on the tree is flat.  I have seen a CCR tree constructed with the pipes/mounts going all the way to the bottom of the star in the inverted V shape so the pipes in the center are longer than the outside.  The CCR ribbons are all the same length.  So do folks start at the top under the star which matches the shape in the sequencer but will result in an uneven bottom or do you start at the bottom to make sure the pixels line up there but will result in some unevenness at the top.  After creating 29 sequences for a 12 ribbon tree I want to mount them on the tree so they appear correct like the sequencer.  Thanks for any input.

I think I figured it out...you line up the bottom and the angle of the outer pipes cause the inverted V to form naturally which matches the sequencer graphic.  The bottom row of pixels have to line up.

Hi, I mounted mine about 1" below the star following the contour of it. The "V" is supposed to work better at scrolling text and images as well I think. I built mine tough to stand the canadian winters, treated 2x4 and metal strapping. If you've done 29 CCR tree sequences and are willing to share I'd love to see them, I suck at superstar! :D
